I have had a few people joke and say that they heard that I was going to the Olympics.. and I get a kick out of watching their facial expression when I tell them that she is related!

Now, I have never read the John Sandford books before, and I would maybe think about reading them, but I am sure that I would have to actually get them from the library, as this is one book set that Dawn does NOT loan out. But the other thing, Dawn said they can be a bit gruesome too.. Me, I like the fluff stuff a lot of times.. easy peasy reading.. But I am thinking of at least trying to read one of his.. I mean Dawn EATS this stuff up!! I know that she is geedy with excitement right now after reading this...!

And this little card is for Dawn. She emailed me and asked for a birthday card for someone at work.. With frogs on it.. Well, I first thought I would use the "unfrogettable" set.. but I am pretty sure that I use that set last year for this person..

And Hannah finished her babysitting class from the Red Cross. She is all ready to take care of the little ones now. She keeps telling me all the things that she learned. So that is good..

I pre-ordered my stuff from the new Stampin Up catalog finally.. so am waiting for that to get here. I think that the man in the brown suit comes on Thursday.. YUP, I have to wait until Thursday! I can't wait to play with some of the new stamp sets.. It might be what I need to be a bit more motivated. I wouldn't hold my breath on that, but still.

a.. A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel .
b.. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.

Well this is the last of the Pun Fun cards.. My favorite is the one with the little bird.. It just turned out really cute!!

There are a few of us in the neighborhood who get to pick.. Well this is the fruits of today's labors! Two bowls!! Yesterday we had this many too!! YUM!!

OK, as promised, I did some stamping this weekend.. I used the Pun Fun set, and all of them have glitter somewhere on them. I still have a couple more to make from the set.. but at least I did some stamping.. AND... it was fun! I miss being in my messy stamping area! I guess that means I need to get busy!

OK, that is enough time to re-read all of the books a couple more times...
As I was reading on Stephanie Meyer's web site, she is writing a book called Midnight Sun. This is Edward's version of Twilight. I can't wait for that either.
And for those out there.. I am on Team Edward!!
Sunday, July 6, 2008
This is the cover of the 4th book, although I have seen another one too.. But this is off Stephenie Meyer's web site.. soo.. anyway.. this one come out Aug 2.. I will be ready!
Saturday, July 5, 2008
Oh, and I just read on Dawn's blog, that she has started Twilight... I guess she will have to thank me for this one too.. as I got her into Harry a few years ago too...

NOW, if I still feel like I need to see more fireworks, I can go tonight to find some more. Will have to see.. it was pretty late night last night, after midnight when all was said and done.
And by the way... not my picture.. guess who didn't bring her camera!!!
And yesterday, we also went to the Weisman Museum.. This is on the University of Minnesota campus. The building has intrigued me since it was built. I mean, look at it. And since we were on "vacation", well.. no better time. It is REALLY small.. one small level of art! We were shocked. That building is full of offices! And it only took us about 45 minutes to look through. OK, it was disappointing! Loved the Minneapolis Institute of Art much better! But now I can say that I have been there! And I did bring my camera, but didn't take any pictures!
Off for some other fun day today! I am not sure what we will do to celebrate the nations birthday, but I am sure that we will find something fun!
Happy 4th of July... and as Dawn pointed out... the year is 1/2 over.. only 173 days until Christmas!!

Now I am having an issue with the movie coming out.. Robert Pattinson playing Edward! I just don't see it.. That isn't who I pictured as I was reading the book. Will have to see.. But now I know I will have to see this movie in December (December 12 for those who need to know that)!
I do have 3 other books to read, however, I am thinking that I need to go and get the next book and forget those others for now.. hmmm
